Antonio Gaudí was a visionary.

Being one of the most illustrious citizens of Barcelona, his mark was captured in the city through a series of buildings that, up until now, survive for the enjoyment of all.

This modernist architect has among his best-known works, both World Heritage Sites, Casa Batlló and Casa Milá or La Pedrera, located in Passeig de Gràcia.

Its colorful and curious façades do not leave anyone indifferent. Come and admire them and get to know the artist’s work up close.

Traveller Tip: If you want to visit the houses from the inside, on the website of each of them you will find all the information regarding ticket sales, timetables, etc.


You can’t leave Barcelona without knowing its most important monument: The Holy Family

The culminating work of Antonio Gaudí was begun in 1882… And it’s so great that it’s not over yet!

Thousands of details adorn its naturalist modernist style façade. Its author was inspired by nature to create this magnificent building.

Elements such as flowers, trees, various animals… abound throughout the construction.

Look closely. Every time you look at it, you’ll discover a new, symbolic image.

If you go far enough away to see the entire building, you’ll have a truly spectacular view of this temple that you won’t forget for sure!

Travelling Tip: On Sundays, going to mass at 9 am is free until full capacity is reached.

Move around in advance (as there are usually a lot of people), so that you can enter the church and be surprised by its incomparable interior.
